  • Patent number: 10827592
    Abstract: An LED circuit board, system, and method of using an LED configuration tool are described. The LED circuit board contains a microprocessor that wakes up when power is supplied from the LED configuration tool. The microprocessor determines that the LED configuration tool is present by sending a signal from one pin and detecting whether the same signal is received at another pin. When analog or digital programming information received from the LED configuration tool matches information in a table of the microprocessor, the programming information is stored to change the lighting parameters used by the LEDs. Feedback from the microprocessor to the LED configuration tool provides information regarding the status of programming the microprocessor.

The connector (3) has two main sides (32) situated opposite one another that each have at least two electrical contact pads (31) of the connector (3) located on them. As seen in a cross section perpendicular to the main sides (32) and perpendicular to an insertion direction (x) of the connector (3), the contact pads (31) are arranged both geometrically and with electrical point symmetry, so that incorrect-polarity protection against incorrect electrical connection of the organic light emitting diode (1) is attained.

  • Patent number: 10184647
    Abstract: A lamp including a lamp body, a light source plate in the lamp body, a light source on the light source plate, and a connection structure configured to electrically connect a power supply to the light source. The connection structure includes a wiring groove defined in a bottom of the lamp body, an electrode pin electrically coupled to the light source and extending into the wiring groove, and a wire fastener coupled to the bottom of the lamp body. The wire fastener is configured to move between open and closed positions. When the power supply line is in the wiring groove and the wire fastener is moved into the closed position, the wire fastener presses the power supply line toward the electrode pin and causes the electrode pin to pierce the power supply line to electrically couple the power supply line to the light source via the electrode pin.

  • Patent number: 10165239
    Abstract: A digital theatrical lighting fixture that can be used to provide a new lighting system with improved features and functionality. The digital theatrical lighting fixture integrates light production, light modulation, and a camera into a single device along with a control interface, integrated image processing capability such as for processing images captured by the camera, and communication capability, e.g., for communicating with a central controller and/or with other digital theatrical lighting fixtures. This highly integrated fixture uses the camera to monitor a lit scene, and its (or the central controller's) intelligence/software to dynamically adjust its output as well as to implement a show lighting script much like a projector. In a lighting system, the lighting fixtures described herein can communicate to each other and to a central controller (or control systems) such that lighting produced by the lighting system can be calibrated and coordinated in a comprehensive way.
